She was broken in for 4-5 weeks when she was 3.5 years. She had a rider on her back a handful of times during this period. When she was 4.5 years, we brought her back inside and trained her for about 6 months, but with a couple of good breaks during this period.

Her trot is good, and with a more strength and balance, it will become exceptionally good. Her canter has good potential, but the pace is untrained. She responds easily to aids without tension or nervousness. She knows the basic dressage exercises and is ready for further training in all gaits.
